Designed by John Nash in 1827 as the entrance to Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch stands imposingly and regally on a corner of Hyde Park in the center of a hectic traffic circle, and one of London's most notoriously polluted roads.
The Arch actually used to stand beside Buckingham Palace until 1851, but it wasn't grand or wide enough (apparently!) for the Royal family so it was relocated. By law, if you aren't senior royalty or part of the royal artillery regiments, you aren't allowed to drive or ride through the arch. There are three small rooms inside the arch that were used as a police station until 1950- first for the royal constables of the park, and later the Metropolitan Police.
This still doesn't deter tourists and Londoners alike from marveling at this Carrara marble site and enjoying a look at the sculptures depicting Nelson and Wellington's victories over the French.
